Jamie posting again. Mom has still not had her surgery. Now they say for sure tomorrow. I have heard that all week. I feel like I am on a roller coaster ride, and I'd sure like to get off.
Mom still on vent, and temporary pacer wire. Life support. They have kept her more heavily sedated as she gets upset when she tries to communicate. Believe me, if I was on a vent, I'd want to be out too.
I have wished I was not a nurse since this all started. Knowing so much makes things harder. I forget which Doc told me "Your problem is that you know too much". But as much as this looks like a major train wreck, I have seen miraculous things over the years. Folks I wouldn't have bet a nickle on that made it. It is all in someone else's hands, so I am trying to stay patient and positive. I will post again whenever she gets her surgery. Once again, thanks for all the prayers, vibes and thoughts.
I am mentally and emotionally fried I think. But this too shall pass. I hope soon.
Hugs and thanks from me and Sunny and Scooter.
